Welcome to my website.
I am a licensed Marriage Family Therapist (MFC 46755) with 8 years of experience. I work in private practice in Noe Valley providing psychotherapy to children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I also currently hold a position as a faculty member and therapist for the Intensive Family Therapy Program in the Department of Psychiatry at UCSF.
My approach to therapy is eclectic and has been inferred from my experience, trainings, and education. Most importantly, therapy is a relationship and as such it subjectively connects a therapist and a client. It is critical for a client to be able to trust his/her therapist so that a therapeutic alliance can develop. I strive to provide a non-threatening, compassionate environment for you to explore what might prevent you from having the relationships, career, and life that you long for.
I am happy to answer any question you might have about myself and my approach to psychotherapy in order for you to establish if we can be a good fit.
